    Is it just me or has this forum gotten less active recently?

    As far as I can tell, it means 'of velvet (from) Pontoglio' - a town in Italy known for its sumptuous velvet fabric manufacture.

    Polo Ralph Lauren vest, made of Pontoglio Velvet.

    Or Pontoglian. Or something.

    My username comes (originally) from the name of a lake in South Africa: Lake Chotiari. ('chott' means lake in Afrikaans). I read about a project to drain the lake in an engineering magazine at a job I had once long ago. I went by 'chotiari' for years, and then it gradually got shortened to 'choti' and then hack-pluralized to 'chotii'. Some places, it's 'chotiiii'. On my birthday last year, it was chotXLVIII. The year I turned 30...it was X rated.

    It seems the word means something in Hindi - 'little' or 'small'. Which also applies.

    All available. Crappy pics (well, even crappier than usual, it's a gloomy afternoon here)

    Oxxford Carroll & Co pure cashmere. Approx 42S. Quite a surprising find round here.

    Couple of ties. The Kilgour is weird, slubby and quite a stiff texture - wtf is verona? PZ is wool and gorgeous so actually that's probably NA.

    First Oxxford item I've seen. Content unknown, but probably either wool or a high% wool blend. Price on it was $25 (they do so love their Fashion Focus thing), so I didn't buy it, but I'm willing to proxy. No size tag. I 'measured' ptp with my hand and it's about 25" across. I didn't see any damage anywhere.

    I really dig the Fisherman's Blues. My shitty band plays that sometimes. Would have dug finding that album.

    I'm missing the reference. A league of their own, I get, but....?

    Alden for BB shell. Worn only a few times, but old enough to have faded to a lovely reddish brown patina.

    Available.

    Ahh damn, text didn't show up. He tells the ump he looks like a penis with a hat on. The shearling looks, uhh, mushroomesque.
